Hey there! How’s your week been? I feel like I have been busy all week but yet I have got nothing done. It’s crazy how time gets away from you.
One thing I did this week was try out a new recipe. This is not my recipe, I found it on Pinterest ( this is the link for the recipe). It is so amazing I just knew I had to share it with you.
So the other day I was going to make the only form of Shepherds pie that I will eat (I’m very picky). I was boiling up my sweet potatoes because they take forever, and about 15 minutes after I started them I realized my ground hamburger had gone bad. I was thinking “great I’m already boiling my sweet potatoes and I don’t have any more ground hamburger “. So we figured something else out for dinner and I was trying to decide what to do with soon to be mashed sweet potatoes and I found Sweet Potato Brownies. I am always down for trying healthy versions of my favorite treats.
So here’s the recipe:
- 1 1/2 cup mashed sweet potatoes
- 1 cup of peanut butter
- 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup honey
- Splash of vanilla
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon ( I didn’t measure mine and may have accidentally put too much in. It still tastes good though)
- Dark chocolate chips ( I added this to the recipe because I love chocolate)
Mix it all together and put it in an 8×8 greased pan.
Make sure your oven is preheated to 350 degrees and bake for 25 minutes.
Seriously these brownies are the best. If you are sitting there thinking ” Ang that is absolutely disgusting I’m not putting sweet potatoes in brownies” you won’t be the only one. My hubby is not a fan of these type of treats either. However, he loved these brownies. I was amazed he even admitted to liking them. The best part is you can’t even taste them, they just serve as a base so you don’t need flour. I would also like to say my picky toddler loves them as well and tried to steal her daddies off his plate.
I’m bummed I thought I took pics of the before and after but apparently I was too excited to eat them that I forgot.
If you get around to trying these out, let me know how you like them! If you have any other amazing sweet potato recipes feel free to send them my way!
Thanks for reading, have a fantastic weekend!
